Farm and Forest Summer Camp
June-August 2022

Registration is now open!
Everyone Outside has teamed with the awesome folks at Fire Ring Farm to bring you a summer camp that offers kids ages 5-13 (older/younger with permission) a chance to follow their passions, explore and connect with the natural world and learn about sustainable farming and land use in small groups under the supervision of caring nature mentors. Our camper to mentor ratio is 6:1 or better to ensure a nurturing, supportive environment.
What do we do all day?
Each day we spend time learning through play by exploring the forest at Palmer-Taylor Preserve and doing nature connection games/challenges. We also engage in hands-on agricultural activities to learn about farming healthy food with our farm team at Fire Ring Farm.
